Member Function Documentation

virtual std::string Algorithm::AlgorithmName ( ) const

Provides the name of this algorithm.

the standard algorithm name

The standard algorithm name can be a name like AES or AES/GCM. Some algorithms do not have standard names yet. For example, there is no standard algorithm name for Shoup's ECIES.

AlgorithmName is not universally implemented yet

Reimplemented in AuthenticatedSymmetricCipher, SignatureVerificationFilter, SignerFilter, AuthenticatedDecryptionFilter, HashVerificationFilter, HashFilter, StreamTransformationFilter, ClassNullRNG, BitBucket, RDSEED, DH_Domain< GROUP_PARAMETERS, COFACTOR_OPTION >, HMAC< T >, RDRAND, CRC32, GCM_Base, Adler32, EAX_Base, CCM_Base, SHA3, and VMAC_Base.
